Hello Sajeewa,

Following up on what Mariano Rech has told you, from 22 carbons atoms you would generate a matrix of distances containing 22^2 = 484 numbers. The number of off-diagonal elements for this symmetric matrix is (484-22)/2 = 231. This is equivalent to the formula n(n-1)/2 that Mariano used. Thus we would believe you have 231 different numbers. That is not at all the same as saying you have a 231 x 231 matrix (that would yield 231^2 = 53 361 numbers!). How many numbers do you actually have?

Cheers,

Sergio Aragon

Subject: [AMBER] Interpreting the distance covariance matrix

Hi,

I have run a distance-covarinace analysis for 22 alpha carbon atoms

specified by the mask1. I thought I would get a 22 by 22 symmetric matrix

where the diagonal elements correspond to the variances. Instead I got a 231

by 231 symmetric matrix. I am having a very hard time interpreting this.

This is my first time running a distance covariance calculation in amber. I

would really appreciate if you could give me some helpful explanation in

interpreting the structure of 231 by 231 matrix.

Best Regards

Sajeewa
